Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: The book" eat pray love"

Hi Judey
Like thousands of other women, I've read Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I highly recommend it because she is a wonderful writer, and her likeable personality comes through crystal clear. I'm usually not sympathetic with women who bare their soul in public confessionals... who are these guests who visit Dr. Phil? Where does he find them?
 
But Elizabeth Gilbert is so much more.. she's not just a whiner... she actually picks herself up, and pro-actively sets out to solve her emotional dilemmas. And she does it in a winsome, winning manner, very well written, and amazingly interesting.
 
Let me know how you like it.

Hi Judey-

Are you still reading Eat, Pray, Love and looking for someone to discuss it with? I am about a third of the way through the book and think it is fantastic! It is more than Gilbert's writing style--I do love her descriptions and self-effacing humor--what I like is that I can identify with her struggle to find her true self and learn from her experiences.

If you want to discuss the book in more detail let me know!
